The NOLA levees can't hold back the waters and nor can anyone hold back these 5 guys, who 28 years into it, are at the top of their game. Each show is unique as they pull from a repetoire of literally 100s of originals and 100s of covers. And this one is no exception as they delivered a heartfelt show filled with amazing moments as they must have been wondering what might be left of their homes which they hadn't seen in weeks. A performance like this is what keeps a fishhead coming back for the music, the family, the surprises and a warm, friendly atmosphere. This show sounds great and is a genuine keeper. And if you want more of the same in an even more intimate setting and a tad more Weir mixed in, check out the sold out next night from the Sweetwater Saloon in Mill Valley which is available here:
It's an effective way to directly support a great bunch of guys who have been extremely generous about sharing their music across 4 decades. <>

If you don't know the Radiators already, it's time to get acquainted. This is the world's greatest "bar band" but really, that's not all they're capable of being.

Think Little Feat at their best with generous touches of Creedence, the Dead, Dr. John, the funky Meters and dozens of other New Orleans-flavored bands thrown in (These guys are New Orleans natives all and play what their fans affectionately refer to as "Fish head music", which has a lot to do with band leader "Zeke" Fishhead, whose head, well....looks like a fish).

At any rate the sound quality of this show is crystal clear and the band is in fine form. Check out the jam on the Meters classic "Look-a-Py-Py" into "Fortune Teller" and back...the rockingest tunes are at the end: "Treat a Stranger Right" and especially "Nightmare on a Misery Train>Dead ass Home"....everything in between in pretty great, too.

Oh, and don;t forget--you get a special guest appearance by Bob Weir jamming nicely on Deal, Rooster, and Race is on.

Download now!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!

A ferocious, awesome show; Zeke and Camile were both on fire, and the whole band brought plenty of intensity and heat! Of course, Katrina was the theme of the evening, never far from anyone's thoughts, as the band played Bottom Line, Hold Back the Flood, River Run, Waiting for the Rain, Crash on the Levee, What Would I Do? and a _very_ heartfelt version of Everybody Ought to Treat a Stranger Right (Long Way from Home) to close out the second set. Bob Weir showed up in the middle of the first set, and really helped light up the whole night. Bobby can be a mixed bag, but when he's good, he's very good, and, though he started slow, he was very good indeed this evening. This was one of the most powerful and emotionally intense shows I've seen in many a year, and I consider myself lucky to have been there. And, of course, it just plain rocks! (Which always helps!) :)

The recording is the usual high quality right from Kenny's board, no surprises there. I do wish Camile had been a little louder in the mix (he was at the show) but that's my usual (and only) complaint about Kenny's feeds, and it's a very minor complaint indeed.

This show is simply a must-have, no two ways about it!
